We all need this right now:

Don't give up
Someone is with you
Like stars across the sky
We were born to shine
And in order to shine
You will have to win

And then, you will win!

From Office - Microsoft Edge Addons:

Office browser extension puts an icon on the Microsoft Edge toolbar that gives you direct access to your Office files, whether they are stored online or on your computer.

Office web extension can open files stored in OneDrive and OneDrive for Business.

You get the features of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Sway right in your browser without needing Office installed.

The Office browser extension now includes proofing of your content*. It connects to a Microsoft online service that offers spelling, grammar and refinements suggestions for your writing on most websites and is available in more than 80 languages.

To get the extension, launch Microsoft Store > Click "Productivity" > type "Office browser extension" in the search box.  More information here:  Quick access to your Office files in the browser - Office Support

FTR, PaleMoon was my preferred and default browser for many years - I think I started using it around 2010. I probably saw Corrine mention it somewhere! IE had been my default, but it seemed more and more sites were moving towards W3C standards and away from IE/MS standards. Plus it seemed MS was already beginning to abandon IE. It stopped working right.

A quick search showed that the earliest mention of Pale Moon here at LzD was in March, 2014.  In fact, that was when I switched to it:  Pale Moon Browser

It is Europe's turn this weekend.

what do you think?
And for the record, I have never, not once, ever had Windows Update reboot my computer while I was using it without warning AND without providing me the opportunity to postpone the reboot.

Plus, Windows 10 has the option to set "Active Hours":

 --   Open Settings.
 --   Click on Update & Security.
 --   Click the Change active hours option.
 --   Specify the time range you're usually working on your device.
 --   Note: The maximum amount of time you can set is 18 hours ...
 --   Click the Save button.
